PUTRAJAYA: The Health Ministry is preparing a module to be used as a reference by Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) personnel to reduce their weight.

Bukit Aman management department director Datuk Zulkifli Abdullah said the health guideline was prepared based on the performance on reduction of weight, fat percentage and waist measurements by police personnel taking part in the 2016 'Trim and Fit' programme.

He said the health template, which would contain a suitable exercise plan and balanced diet, was now being studied and analysed by the Kuala Lumpur Health and Putrajaya Health Department.

"The plan is conducted based on what is suitable for PDRM personnel.

Many standard guidelines are suggested for healthy diets, but they need not necessarily be suitable for us.

"As such, the decision and evaluation of the pioneer programme will be used as a yardstick by PDRM personnel to carry out a healthy lifestyle, apart from boosting work performance," he said after launching a three-kilometre kayaking activity under the programme here Saturday. - Bernama
